I mistyped the flag; it's link0.  (it's copied from a hostname.de0
that works with a genuine-DEC card).  The card is connected to a
100Mbit hub.  The same driver and link flags works on a DE500 with an
older stepping of the chip.

I haven't seen the Asante 100Mbit led go on at all, either when
powercycling the Pentium the card is in, or during autoconfig, or
 after the "-link0". (but if it went on only briefly, I may have
missed it.)
